Tottenham target justifies Modric comparison as Paratici’s eyes move
Tottenham Hotspur’s search for a new playmaker linked them to Rennes star Lovro Majer – and he had a stunning performance.
Tottenham lack a true number 10 and have struggled for creativity since Christian Eriksen came out.
Man of the Match reported in November that Tottenham were keen to sign Majer in 2022.
It is suggested that Majer is a priority for Fabio Paratici and co, just a few months after joining Dinamo Zagreb.
Majer has been compared to former Tottenham ace Luka Modric, and you can see why.
The small size, grace and creativity on the ball, even the headband – Majer looks like a Modric regen!
Tottenham’s goal Majer shines in Rennes’ victory
Rennes was dazzling on Sunday, beating Saint-Etienne 5-0 away from home.
Majer created the first two goals, setting up Gaetan Laborde with a defensive pass before setting up Martin Terrier.
Majer added a third assist by setting up a Terrier howler.
That kind of cunning is what Tottenham are looking for, and Majer has proven why Paratici wants it.
Rennes won’t sell Majer easily, especially if Tottenham’s goal continues to shine this season.
